Pottery Barn’s New Accessible Home Line Includes ADA-Compliant Furniture

From the dining room to the bedroom, small home upgrades can make a tremendous difference to those living with a disability. One in seven adults has a mobility impairment — and two in five adults over the age of 65, according to the CDC.

Pottery Barn is reimagining its best-selling home collections to be more accessible to those with mobility challenges. On Friday, the home brand launched its new Accessible Home Collection, which features thoughtfully designed furniture for those living with disabilities or injuries, as well as the aging-in-place community.

Often times, compliant home products like grab bars, adjustable beds or wheelchair-accessible desks stand out in otherwise well-designed interiors. With this launch, Pottery Barn seeks to offer comfortable and safe design that doesn’t compromise great style or limit the choice of colors, sizes or styles.

The 150-piece collection includes modern bathroom vanities with compliant counter heights, open-style desks with accessible shelving, wheelchair-accessible dining tables and pivot mirrors in seven sleek finishes. There’s also a swivel nightstand, smart adjustable beds and accessories like desk lamps, sconces and hooks that fit contract-grade specifications.

In order to develop products that meet the specific requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act, the retailer consulted with industry experts including Lisa Cini, founder and CEO of Mosaic Design Studio and leading authority on design for senior living environments.

The team also tapped into its internal employee network, Disability Education and Advocacy Network (DEAN), which is led by people with disabilities who are experts in the fields of inclusive disability education and advocacy.

“For the collection, [DEAN] served as a key resource in making sure the products we were developing made sense and would work for them,” says Pottery Barn President Marta Benson. “They even provided us with other product ideas that we plan to bring to life in future collections.”

According to Pottery Barn, the brand plans to continue expanding its accessible line in the future. “We strongly believe that accessible design is good design,” Benson tells Good Housekeeping. “It’s something that will continue to influence our design team each season moving forward.”
